Elfa shelf/baket

Believe it or not I re-purposed an Elfa system that one of my two children took to college. It sits right behind my desk and has 5 or 6 baskets that are wide and long enough to lay construction paper...

I hate to say it....

but I can almost promise you that there will be a point at which you are trying to "undo" it. The problem won't lie with this great parent, but either with someone else that you are not comfortable...

Thanks for the ideas!

Maycee, Thank you for the Mountain Language idea. My cards look different, but I am intrigued by that resource! I know that Kathy (former owner) was a big fan of the Shurley Method, and although I...

I keep a pocket chart with plain old spring loaded clothespins and make some sort of general announcement like, "Don't forget, if you need an "Indenti-clip" feel free to borrow one." There is always...

I've got 2 boys that are like that....

And yes! I finally limited them to 3 questions per day (we are departmentalized so they spend the afternoon with me), you might want to start with 3 morning and 3 afternoon.

I am so sorry!! It is such a heartbreak to "go the distance" with a child and then have the parents not only fail to appreciate your efforts - but to try to blame you for his problems!
You've gotten...

Interesting that you should ask..

This is my 4th year of teaching that combo. I have never found a "theme" that seems to work for both. That being said, I find that it is a great combo to teach together. I will be interested to hear...

it is the best grade because....

they are old enough to do "stuff" (read: independently!) and they have not yet grown snotty!
